Devs I'm talking to really want to try Morpheus. Community feels like it is the best way to introduce VR to mainstream consumers.

From The Z, to quote: Even though Sony did not officially announced the PS4 Firmware 1.60 yet, there are already some rumours about an upcoming PS4 Firmware Update 1.60.

Sony Goes Hands-on with Thief for PS4 / PlayStation 4, Details

50°
12w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements went hands-on with Thief for PS4 / PlayStation 4 with details below, as follows:

Garrett snuffs out a candle flame as he stalks through the closed jewelry shop, inches away from a snoring guard. While the jeweler toils in his basement and his wife basks by the fire, Garrett slips silently from room to room, rifling through drawers and pocketing valuable trinkets.

Thief on PS4 is at its best when Garrett is left to his own devices, enabling players to vault through windows and pry open cabinets as the master thief himself.

This reboot of the classic stealth series takes a more open-world approach as players prowl the alleys and rooftops of The City, a shadowy nexus bathed in perpetual twilight. The City itself is a visual delight, steeped in long shadows and wavering fires that turn every nook and cranny into a sneaky play space.

And Thief's thieving feels tactile. Coins, jewelry, and other collectibles litter cabinets and line hidden vaults, providing ample motivation for completionists to search every corner and crevice. The more loot you collect, the more resources you'll be able to buy.

One resource worthy of investment is Garrett's trusty bow, which supports many arrow types - some for extinguishing flames, others...
 

Video: PS4 AMD Jaguar CPU 1.8Ghz Rumors, Motherboard Components

21w ago - Below is a video derived from THIS PDF file (via PC Watch) with details from ChipWorks on the rumored PS4 AMD Jaguar CPU 1.8Ghz and two disabled GPU compute units alongside the PlayStation 4 motherboard components explained.

To quote: PlayStation 4 - AMD Jaguar CPU 1.8GHZ - PS4 Rumor and Two Disabled Compute Units

The PlayStation 4's AMD Jaguar CPU clock speed has yet to be officially confirmed by Sony, but there is recent evidence and rumors to suggest that the CPU is running at 1.8GHZ. Previously, based on comments from various developers and speculation we'd guessed the PS4′s CPU was running at 1.6GHZ. Remember that the AMD Jaguar is designed to run up to 2GHZ, so the 1.8GHZ is right in the Jaguar's range.




Microsoft had up clocked the Xbox One's CPU to 1.75GHZ, and so we assumed the X1 had the CPU advantage - but if these recent rumors prove to be correct, the PS4 will have the X1 beat. Lower clock frequencies require less power and output less heat, and due to the APU of the PS4 already being fairly large, we weren't sure if Sony...
